Featured Eyesore of the Month

September 2013

James Howard Kunstler : September 1, 2013 7:32 pm : Eyesore of the Month

Farm Campus 2The new “farm” office campus of Epic systems, a medical software colossus, in Verona, Wisconsin. This agglomeration of super-sized fake vernacular rural building types is scaled just right for the super-sized racket that medicine has become in this land, and is just as dishonest.

Famr Campus 3
This shot gives you a sense of how the barn-and-silo ensemble works as an office building. No doubt they destroyed hundreds of acres of prime Wisconsin farmland to put up this megastructure of fakery.

Farm campus

Another angle on this abortion.

Farm campus 4
Arial shot reveals the reality of Epic Systems’ phony farm campus. It’s just a UFO that landed on this chunk of former farmland. It’s all about concealing the parking. The especially tragicomic element of this is that the American medical racket is sure to implode within a decade, and this gigantic folly will stand as a monument to dishonesty and greed.

Thanks to Jonathan Thom for bringing this to my attention.

Behold the landscape of Happy Motoring in its latest iteration in northern Virginia, that is, the Washington DC suburbs. It’s significant that the very seat of policy and governance in our country is the epicenter of cluelessness about the fate of our tragic car dependency. They just see endless new layers added onto the existing clusterfuck, and you can be sure that money will continue to be created for it — though it is suicidal for our society.
